  • ISSN : 0008-9176



Thirty-nine patients with choriocarcinoma and one with post molar trophoblastic tumour are presented. It was often found that there had been a long interval between the preceding pregnancy and the time of diagnosis or presentation. As a result, there was a high incidence of non-gynaecological presenting symptoms and 95 pc of our patients belonged to the high risk or poor prognosis group. The highest rate of cerebral metastases from choriocarcinoma so far reported in the world literature is presented here.
